The Music of the first July's day




Dedication to "Sh"

This project arose spontaneously in the summer of 2007 on the celebration of anniversary of St.-Petersburg cultural center "Pushkinskaya, 10". This quartet is in fact a double duet of two young saxophonists Ilia Belorukov and Maxim Pozin and two inveterate avantgardists Vlad Makarov and Dmitriy Kakhovskiy, both playing cellos. The sound turned out to be incredibly deep and the texture is solid because of the diffusion of the winds and the strings. Just like a nightmare of Dmitriy Shostakovich! The music takes you away to the world of endless "sssss", schoenberg, shostakovich, schnittke, stockhausen, just to the capital "Sh" like a metaphor of New music. In this "Sh" the tradition meets innovation.

The title "Leningrad quartet" isn't accidental. In olden days a quartet like this couldn't exist, but it was wanted. In order of that this paradoxical title appeared invented by Leningrad resident Kakhovskiy.

Talking about this music would be just like dancing about architecture and so it could be said: stentorian bells of baritone saxophones are getting tied from doubled, infinitely multiplied cello fiddlesticks

Dmitriy Kakhovskiy - cello
Vladislav Makarov - cello
Ilia Belorukov - alto & baritone saxophones, fluteophone
Maxim Pozin - alto & prepared alto saxophones, clarinet, pocket organ
